The Vikings: Join this Friday’s Simulation & Guest Speaker Announcement

This Friday, I am running an exciting simulation at the Lab: The Vikings.

Leaders of Icelandic Viking tribes will negotiate the distribution of treasures recently obtained from a raid abroad. Agreeing on a deal will be complicated by a recent degradation of their relationships.

Join the simulation and play the role of a Viking Leader defending the interest of their tribe. You can also observe other participants negotiate, which is also a great learning opportunity.

We also have the privilege of hosting Dr. Remigiusz Smolinski as a guest. He is a negotiation professor at HHL in Leipzig, and the founder of The Negotiation Challenge.

About Prof. Dr. Remigiusz Smolinski

Human conflict is ubiquitous and inevitable. It often creates inefficiencies and deprives organizations of valuable growth opportunities. Therefore, the ability to manage and resolve conflict and craft wise agreements has become an essential skill of effective leaders.

Ever since I taught my first negotiation course at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management, I have become passionate about helping the students understand the nature of conflict and how to create and claim value in negotiations.

In 2007, I initiated The Negotiation Challenge as the first international negotiation competition in Europe and since then developed it to one of the major negotiation competitions in the world.

In 2016, I was appointed Honorary Professor of Negotiation at HHL and in January 2022 I became Academic Director of the newly founded Center for International Negotiation at HHL.

As a negotiation professor and in my role as Academic Director of the Center for International Negotiation I am honored to share my passion with the students and help our world become a better place.
